Surprised by New York City — Blossom Tip 30   Recently updated !

Yesterday, when buying my ticket for a tour of Carnegie Hall, I saw four $176 tickets for tonight’s performance.

Sleepless in New York City — Blossom Tip 29

What do you do when you can’t sleep? Last night was my first in New York City; I’m here on a two week pleasure/learning trip. Since I love learning, it’ll be all pleasure 🙂 A sleepless first night!

Yesterday I was walking with my teenage friend, who is 17 years old. We’ve known each other for six years; she takes care of our dogs when we travel. Her favorite sport is rugby and the season has finally started. Yay! Mostly. “Last week, the substitute rugby coach patted my bum,” she said. “I didn’t feel right about it. I […]


Do You Truly Know How to Overcome Setbacks? — Blossom Tip 25

So, Blossy and I wanted to tell you The Parable of the Lumberjack — it’s about facing setbacks in life, which is this week’s theme for “She Blossoms.” Then I asked my She Blossoms Facebook Group members how they cope with setbacks.

When You Feel Scared — Blossom Tip 23

What is the biggest fear you face today? I was thinking about Blossoming despite fear yesterday, while jogging through my dark neighborhood at 5:30 am.
